Skirt Wearing Man Charged In Flashing

A 46-year-old man is facing a charge of indecency after a woman walking her dog in a local park told police she was flashed by a man wearing a mini-skirt.

St. Thomas police say the woman was walking her dog in Athletic Park around 1:30pm Monday when a man with long black hair, wearing a purple sweater and a plaid mini-skirt began yelling at her. The man is alleged to have lifted his skirt, exposing his genitals, and then touch himself in a sexual manner.

The woman was able to get into her car and call 911.

Officers arrested a 46-year-old man in the park. He is charged with committing an indecent act.
